comment What does “Shall be” mean?
It can mean whatever someone can use it to mean. Without a context, it's anyone's guess what it's being used to mean.

comment “Gassy emissions from these giant dinosaurs” vs. “… by these giant dinosaurs”
Of course it's proper English. How could one possibly argue that it's not?

comment How do I politely say I have used my mouth while drinking water from a bottle?
@sgroves You're imagining an unnatural form of emphasis that is weird. If you say it to yourself normally, you'll catch that there's a natural form of emphasis you put on "from", that almost makes the "o" go away.

comment Why do we say “in” a movie but “on” a TV show?
Movies are containers and TV shows are surfaces, just like days of the week are surfaces (on Tuesday) and months are containers (in January), and so on.
